Attached is my ANSYS model of a spring made using cantilever beams. In playing around with with different dimensions, I noticed that the longer I made the connecting section (dirty green section) the less of a total deflection there was. Could someone explain to me why this is?

The overall goal is to be able to make this spring deflect a certain distance, but I am having a really tough time getting my math to equal my ANSYS analysis.
